New Build, loads of money! - Page 3

post #21 of 34
What is this Overkill we speak about?

2600K $314.99
UD7 $349.99
H100 $119.99
2x 2TB HDDs(WD black) $149.99 x2
Antec HCP 1.2KW $279.99

A few External drives

So you looking to be around $2500 mark

Why so many hard drive? Video editor and photography alone could eat up TBs of space. I myself am a video editors, I only edit 720p, 5-6 mintue videos and that alone ended up to be around a 10Gigs, So depending on what his needs are rather have more space then be a limiting factor. Also having external drives helps for backups. RAW image format can be up to 20Megs a picture. I'm pretty sure hes going to be taking more then a few pictures at a time.

The OP also says he does video editting and high resolution pictures.... Sounds like a perfect use for the 2600K over the 2500K imo.

Yes it's the top spec SB atm but it's common knowledge that 2500k is the prefered chip for gaming, and in some cases is better than the 2600k for games.

If you're going to be doing rendering and heavy video editing then get the 2600k, if its only basic editing etc, 2500k will be plenty.

i'll work on a spec and get back to you

Much love ,

Lol It is not that i7 is 1366. It is SB is LGA 1155. i7 920 to 990x are all LGA 1366.

Good Luck on your build. Eyefinity set up is the sexy.

2600K + Sabertooth P67 maybe.

But those are both pretty overkill depending on the situation.

@OP: What, other than video/photo editing, will you be using your PC for? Any gaming?
Yes, I will be using it for extensive gaming such as DIRT3, COD, BF3, that new sandbox god game coming out in a few days or its already out >< Forget what its called.

Btw, 8gb of ram would be great, anything 1600mhz dual channel from Corsair/OCZ/G.Skills with 1.5v would be fine.
Been getting spams from Newegg offering 8 gig g.skill ram, 2 sticks. Looks solid for only 65$

Naw, I know what you mean. But there is a limit in which cost isnt worth the real performance value. Numbers are nice, at least on paper, but its the application of the CPU vs cost that I am more concerned about.

Thanks a bunch! Definitely loving eyefinity... I had the drivers updated for my 5870s and now they support eyefinity and its just pure sexiness.
